It's a nice shot but I am a little confused, perhaps you were implying that there were men who fought wars and they were forever memorialized in this statue? Ok, maybe you don't need a description, since I decided to think about it. IT probably just seemed lacking because of the single subject but that's just IMO until I get a good grasp of what the theme should specifically entail. So never mind, it's on theme but the one subject seems to simplify it for it's obviousness. So good luck

Jaw... I ADORED this questioning!lol
Basically, yes, I can make up an entire story behind anything... even a blank wall... but the theme makes it quite impossible to narrow down the on and off topics!
The shot is gret though... I love angled photos!

Jawsh - the statue depicts a soldier holding a handful of dog tags - most likely from his fallen comrades - So he is more than likely remembering his mates

author says:

Thank you Fallinghorse...I see you get it...I was a decorated war vet and platoon leader...I held this pose...it was sad to lose your men in combat. Guess things just speak more to some than others...

I thought the story here was obvious from the get go, and was surprised to read comments that were questioning that as it is a very strong statement. Very well done.

Ziggy -
I did not question it... but when I look at a picture of a statue, I tend to imagine the story behind the picture, and not the statue... I actually made up this whole story in my head about how the photographer felt as he looked at this statue and remembered someone dear who had been lost in war... because, honestly, the statue itself is a pretty obvious "story"... understand my comment now?

Hi Auther if some people need a story tell them this one.
For the Fallen
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning.
We will remember them.
Great shot GL
